Master of Science

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology combines the basics of physics, biology, and chemistry at the nanometer scale with courses on technology and engineering. The programme fits into the growing worldwide convergence between the basic sciences and between science, technology, and engineering sciences in general. Nanoscience studies phenomena and manipulation at the atomic and molecular scale (nanometers: i.e., one billionth of a meter). Important properties such as the electrical, optical, and mechanical properties are determined by the way molecules and atoms assemble into larger structures on the nanoscale. Nanotechnology is the application of this science in new nanomaterials and nano concepts for new components, systems, and products. These budding scientific disciplines are situated at the interface of physics, chemistry, material science, microelectronics, biochemistry, and biotechnology. Command of these disciplines therefore requires an academic and multidisciplinary scientific education. This is an initial Master's and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis. An increased tuition fee of 6000 EUR is not applicable for students who come from countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA).
